Spicy Mushroom πŸ„ Snack 香辣七味台湾杏鲍菇 (S$5)
Available at 台湾θ₯Ώι–€ζι²θ‡ stall in Ramadhan Feast - AMK Hub Food Fair in @amk_hub from 17 May to 2 June 2019
The giant mushroom is first boiled before grilling and spread with marinate.
Quite juicy and hint spicy spices for kick.

A treat from my sister & bro-in-law who bought this from Foodie Palace, operating on a pushcart & goes around shopping centres (back at Ang Mo Kio Hub basement now till 26 May). ✌🏻 Offering a variety of authentic THAI snacks ranging from the infamous Mango Sticky Rice, Mango Salad, colourful Lukchup 😍😍😍, pretty Tapioca Kuehs & many more, this might satisfy your cravings a little without buying an airticket to the Land of Smiles. πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­

Thai Tako (water chestnut & coconut milk pudding) used to be one of my favourites but its rarity almost made me forget its very existence! ❀❀❀ Going at $4 for 8 pieces, I was really excited to savour these childhood favourites but unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. πŸ˜” While the juicy water chestnut bits did add a nice crunch πŸ‘πŸ», the dessert cube was overly sweet & wayyyyy too soft. Definitely should have been firmer - removing the pandan leaf revealed the absolutely vulnerable tako that was reduced to a wobbly flop. The coconut layer wasn’t fragrant enough too. ❌
.
They redeemed themselves a little with their Candied Tapioca ($3). πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ» The thick tapioca pieces had a nice firm bite without being too tough, β€˜old’ (with unpleasant strands) nor too soggy from soaking in the sugar syrup. πŸ˜‹ While I still found it to be too sweet, it fared well when drizzled with some coconut milk which carried a faint aroma & cut the sweetness of the tapioca. πŸ’•
.
Still a far cry from the Thai desserts in BKK - someone teleport me there for a food trip, please? ✈

One of my favourite childhood eats at pasar malam, these ε˜Ÿε˜Ÿη³• (kueh TUTU) are definitely a great light snack to have! ❀❀❀
.
Daun Pandan ($3.20 for 5) does it right with perfectly soft & fluffy rice flour that isnt too thick, dry nor sticky. Beneath that pearly white steamed cake is an abundance of sugary ground peanuts that were neither too coarse nor fine - of the right texture & sweetness! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ Super fragrant, sweet & savoury in every bite! Moulded into pretty flower shape, one is never enough! πŸ˜‰
.
Except that these ones at AMK Hub was a complete DISASTER cuz they were not thoroughly cooked! 😭😭😭 The steamed cake was still slightly powdery & the gula melaka version we had was NOT MOLTEN at all - still in pieces! 😱
.
We ate these when they were piping hot so no excuses ah! πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ Maybe the Bishan J8 one fares better (tried & tested! πŸ‘πŸ»)

Among all that we tried, this dish from @abracowdabra has got to be my favourite among all! πŸ’• SATAY with Phad Thai?! Hmmm... sounds like a fusion of Malay and Thai cuisine that surprisingly work wonders to my palate! πŸ˜‹ The fragrant nutty satay sauce along with the pleasant, aromatic tinge of spice from the sambal chilli- a sweet & spicy combination that would suit those with a lower threshold for spice! As one who adores spice, I was glad the spicy factor here is rather prominent πŸ‘πŸ». The chicken chunks were also tender and succulent, well marinated and a compatible companion to the satay sauce! ✨ The crab phad thai comprises of snow crab leg along with a sous vide egg that possessed a soft, runny yolk, adding moisture and texture when mixed together with the thin vermicelli noodles. Thankfully this came with snow crab leg instead of surimi crabstick which I personally loathe for its fake flavour and plastic-alike texture. Each bowl of phad thai also comprises of egg omelette and a medley of spices such as spring onions, chilli flakes and fried shallots incorporated within the thin vermicelli noodles, enhancing the overall flavour and fragrance .
